The impact of Masters level study on teachers’ professional development

Edwards, Julie-Ann (2008) The impact of Masters level study on teachers’ professional development Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics, 28, (3), pp. 30-35.

Record type: Article


This on-going NCETM-funded longitudinal study is exploring the impact of studying for an MSc in Mathematics Education on the professional life of a group of teachers. Whilst the findings from this research are already anecdotally known, there has been little systematic research in the UK on which to ground these ‘teacher stories’ of the impact of study at Masters level. We report on the impact on teachers’ individual professional development, the impact on their classrooms, their respective pedagogies and on consequent pupil learning, and the impact on the wider life of the school and the local authorities within which they teach.
